Can I reduce the boot time on my 1500-OEM?
Physical change – when we migrated SLA-1500-OEM (REV C) [green board] to the SLA-1500-OEM (REV E) [blue board] we corrected an issue with the USB port that allowed us to improve the boot time by 3 seconds
IP address issues can impact startup times – We recommend setting a static IP address for best performance
Problems with acquisition can impact startup times – make sure the video source (camera) is powered up and generating video
When the system has finished booting, our application (VideoTrack1500) sends a Version (0x40) command to the serial port as a way to let you know they system is ready to receive commands. It may be possible for you to use this to measure the boot time.
There is a parameter (boot delay) in the U-BOOT boot loader that can be modified to improve boot performance.
